Why Picturesque Gorges de la Nesque is Ideal for Biking or Driving

Contributor blog post by David:

The Gorges de la Nesque is the most spectacular gorge in Provence after the Gorges du Verdon. Whether you are a hiker or cyclist it offers breathtaking views and even in the height of summer is not overrun with either so you can still enjoy its beauty in peace.

If you are cycling, I recommend going clockwise, from St Saturnin les Apt take the D943 towards Sault turning off onto the D5 to Methamis. From there take the D14 crossing the Nesque and passing the vineyards and head for Villes sur Auzon where the Café de Soleil makes an ideal coffee stop.

It took just one holiday in the Luberon in 2003 for David and Karen Taylor to fall in love with Provence. This lead to owning a village house in Saint Saturnin les Apt - a holiday home. However, after just a few visits they took the radical step of leaving home and work in Surrey, England.

The plan was to take a year off to explore Provence and learn French. However, after just a few months a challenge of a different sort presented itself - property. It was a piece of land in a wonderful authentic Provencal village in the Luberon and they set about planning and building two houses and gites over a two year period.

Today David and Karen have a three bedroom villa with private pool, two gites and a chambre d'hôte room with a shared pool. Now (2015) they are approaching their 7th season with 50% repeat guests, for a season that starts at Easter and runs to mid-October.

Details on the different accommodation options can be found here.

When not carrying out work duties the couple continues to explore the endless beautiful Provencal villages and towns. Recording their visits in photographs and sampling great food & scenery.

Their blog began in 2006 as a way for friends and family to follow our adventures it is now a great resource for anyone interested in Provence.
